No magnets. No electronics. No threads. Voodoo Needle by Aeon Sun and Peter Eggink is a completely impromptu miracle that is as visual as it is spooky. A massive hit at Blackpool, Voodoo Needle is one of the most satisfying secrets you’ll learn this year.
Here’s what happens:
On a small pad of paper, you draw a voodoo doll. Your audience member is then given a pen that they “charge” with their energy before giving it back to the performer and asked to name a symbol, number, word, whatever comes to their mind. When the performer draws on the paper the needle moves to trace the same thing. It’s extremely visual and extremely spooky.
The needle can even be isolated under a wine glass to prove that there is no outside influence on it what so ever. Voodoo Needle is not only easy to do but versatile enough for any close-up magician or mentalist to add to their repertoire. Best of all, there are no gimmicks. Everything, including the needle, could be borrowed. Check out Aeon Sun and Peter Eggink’s Voodoo Needle.
